So, for anyone who cares, CBC is going to have a show spun off from this book:

jPOD chronicles the amoral, light-hearted and often shocking adventures of Ethan Jarlewski and his four co-workers who routinely deal with Chinese gangs, boneheaded bosses, sexual swinging, British royalty and gore-laced video games. It stars Alan Thicke, David Kopp, Emilie Ullerup, Steph Song and Sherry Miller.

I am reading Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay right now and will be reading the Golden Compass next.

After seeing I Am Legend and totally hating the ending I want to read the original book by Richard Matheson.

I am reading Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible.

Dave is a retired NASA scientist that has spent alot of time studying golf.

I understand he sometimes gets so frustrated over golf, he wishes to return to rocket science.

My take so far: The book is a very dry, analytical, graph and chart laden example of someone wishing to provide answers to questions that have no answers. It also covers topic such as positive practice, recognizing options and the use of imagination, risk/reward and of course, attitude.

I previously read his Putting Bible book. It was also very analytical. It provided alot of fodder for theory talk on the golf course.

I am reading "Life of Pi" ... give ya more details when i am done ... I am really enjoying it though ...

I just re-read "Lord of the Flies" .... my son was reading it for school and I figured I should re-read it incase he had questions. Hated it then, hated it now.

Also read ... Charles Dickens .... read .. or try to read it every Christmas ... but this year wasn't much of a Christmas for me .. so I didn't enjoy it as much ....

and dont laugh .... My New Years resolution is to read the Bible ... I have started ... not sure if it will make me a better person .. but I am enjoying it ...

I got two books for my birthday and five books plus a GC for CHristmas. I'm down by two and a half right now. The new Anita Blake was pretty good although way too fast a read for those who like supernatural fiction, the new Merry Gentry was not too bad either. Now reading Stephenie Meyer...tomorrow I'll finish her trilogy. Not sure where I'll go from there. I have a list of easily fifty odd books I want to buy, but twenty dollar GC isn't going to spread that thinly, unfortunately. I think maybe I'll wait for a couple more I'm waiting to read to come out in PB before buying...sometimes it's too hard to wait though. I've got Nora Roberts new book (PB) for Christmas so that'll probably be next.

I just started Fire and Ice--Canada, the US, and The Myth Of Converging Values. VERY interesting so far.

Read the bible last spring, cover to cover... even all of the begats. That my friend is dedication! haha! Freaked out my husband and my nephew (he was here for a marine course).

My step-daughter gave me Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert for Christmas. Coug I think you would really enjoy it, that is if you haven't already read it.

I'll give my opinion tomorrow... just read the opening lines and sounds like a romp already! :lol:

Looks like this entire book club section could be contained within one thread!
